documentation maximenu joomla


The maximenu CK  module generates a Joomla! menu which has its own set of options:

  • Description in the link title
  • Effect configurable mootools for the conduct
  • Use horizontally or vertically several times on the same page
  • Multi-columns
  • Loading modules in the menu
  • Display image without text in the link
  • Effect Fancy (movable cursor) on the horizontal mode niveau0
  • Ability to create rounded styles in CSS (HTML architecture for this purpose)
  • MVC structure that allows to override the view file in the template

All these options make it not always easy to know how to go about changing the CSS styles to adjust the menu for his own use and use the administrative settings. Here is a documentation that explains the structure of HTML and CSS to modify it to act on the elements that interest you!

Given the amount of work that this development need and to keep the module free for download, the module documentation is to buy a small amount of few euros.

Feel free to download the documentation (more than 50 pages, see contents table below) to better understand how the menu is made and also to support this project in order to continue to update it.
